I have come across many teachers in many places who have sacrificed a lot while imparting education to students. So we decided to give these awards to teachers and not to others. I consider education is the most leading factor to development of the society. Our main aim is to educate all children for betterment of the society.” Ajmal further appealed to all to cooperate for the success of ANREM, and thereafter 100 per cent change in the education sector may not be distant cry if everything goes according to plans.
